Since nobody seems to be hitting good shots, I'll share again. Wednesday, whilst breaking 90 for the second time this week, I hit my shot of the week. On the par four eleventh at Riverpines, I wound up in the greenside bunker, with a pretty severe downhill lie, and about 20 yards to the pin. I had about fifteen yards of bunker to clear, so I couldn't get cute with the shot. I hooded the blade on my 58° a little bit, and thumped the hell out of the sand. The ball landed about a yard over the bunker in the fringe and the bounded onto the green. It finished about ten feet past the hole, and I burned the edge of the hole with my par putt, but that bunker shot was magnificent.
Ok................ so to hell with all the above. I felt completely lost today. So, I went back to my “roots” of thinking only about the leading edge of club face being parallel with my lead arm at A4 and swinging through with a feeling of throwing everything at my target. Played 9 holes with that and actually felt good again and shot a decent score.
I think I try to play too much into instructor Phil’s game that I forget how to play golfer Phil’s game. In short, I get in my own damn head way too much.
